“Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.” ~Ed Cunningham

A Message from Dorothy Baumann:

The Friends of the Mattituck Laurel Library we’re finally able to have our first meeting of the year in mid-October. Just crazy, but what hasn’t been weird this year?

Due to the pandemic, we have decided to suspend all membership and fundraising efforts. The total membership from 2019-2020 will be extended for this year without additional dues. Fundraising for our scholarship grants rely on the generosity of our local merchants. In consideration of the upheaval in normal business, we have decided not to request assistance this year. We did grant a scholarship in June and hope to do the same in June of 2021. This being said, our major concern is for the well-being of everyone in our community. If you find yourself in a position to make a donation, it is very appreciated and tax deductible. We will get through this - together.
